San Juan Capistrano General Plan Element Update

Safety Element Update

The Safety Element is one of ten State-required Elements of the City’s General Plan. The goal of the Safety Element is to reduce the potential short and long-term risk of death, injuries, property damage, and economic and social dislocation resulting from fires, floods, droughts, earthquakes, landslides, climate change, and other hazards. State law requires jurisdictions to update the Safety Element at the same time as updating the Housing Element, so that safety measures can take into consideration the anticipated housing growth in a community and create policies and goals to ensure the safety of current and future residents.
